Privacy Policy

We have a few fundamental principles:

  • We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it.
  • We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.
  • We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of one of our services.
  • We aim to make it as simple as possible for you to control what’s visible to the public, seen by search engines, kept private, and permanently deleted.

Below is our privacy policy which incorporates these goals: (Note, this document is based upon the Automattic Privacy Policy and is licensed under a Creative Commons Sharealike license. This means you’re more than welcome to steal it and repurpose it for your own use. Just make sure to replace references to us with ones to you!)

Plano & Simple operates several websites including planoandsimple.comsimpleincubator.com and theplanoindex.com. It is Plano & Simple’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, Plano & Simple collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Plano & Simple’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Plano & Simple’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Plano & Simple may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Plano & Simple also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and visitors commenting on Plano & Simple profile pages. Plano & Simple only discloses logged in user and visitor IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to Plano & Simpl’s websites choose to interact with Plano & Simple in ways that require Plano & Simple to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Plano & Simple gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for our services to provide their full name and email address. Those who engage in transactions with Plano & Simple may be asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Plano & Simple collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Plano & Simple. Plano & Simple does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics

Plano & Simple may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, Plano & Simple may monitor the most popular company profile sites. Plano & Simple may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Plano & Simple does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

Plano & Simple discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Plano & Simple’s behalf or to provide services available at Plano & Simple’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Plano & Simple’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Plano & Simple will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Plano & Simple discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Plano & Simple believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Plano & Simple, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of a Plano & Simple website and have supplied your email address, Plano & Simple may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Plano & Simple and our products. We primarily use our blog and social media services to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Plano & Simple takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
